Our work has focussed on gallium lanthanum glass and fibre, for both active and passive applications. As part of our ongoing programme, optical, thermal and mechanical properties of these glasses are under study. In parallel with this, fibre drawing is being refined in a quest for practical fibres. Over the past year, improvements have been made in understanding and eliminating the sources of loss in these glasses. In this paper, we describe the current specifications of fibres based on this material group.

Abstract

Our work has focussed on gallium lanthanum glass and fibre, for both active and passive applications. As part of our ongoing programme, optical, thermal and mechanical properties of these glasses are under study. In parallel with this, fibre drawing is being refined in a quest for practical fibres. Over the past year, improvements have been made in understanding and eliminating the sources of loss in these glasses. In this paper, we describe the current specifications of fibres based on this material group.
